WTB: Single AMG 3 pc 8.5 x17

I recently picked up three AMG 3pc wheels for my R129 from someone who hit a pothole. Unfortunately he scrapped the other wheel without knowing they could be rebuilt

That being said I need to buy a single wheel to complete my set. I have looked everywhere I can think of for one so if you know anyone or anywhere that can sell me one (shipped to Canada) please let me know. Thanks

Contact 1st german of eBay if you can't get anything closer.

1st-german on eBay

I have purchased from him on and off eBay, his business rebuilds all sorts of wheels in Germany.

Most recently I purchased barrels for the same type wheels from him. Shipping is very fast from Germany with him.

He is very reliable and has a lot of recourses.

I do have his email and link to his business somewhere, I'll look and if I can find it I'll post back..

Also check the posting history of BW member fidrio, I believe it's the same guy and you can PM him as well.

Good Luck

From eBay Germany,

4X O Z Racing AMG 8 5J x 17 H2E18 3 TLG Teilig Mercedes SL R129 Felgen C7400175 | eBay

This is a set of 4 fronts, exactly what you need. Buy the set for $1500 + shipping, keep one wheel, and sell the other 3 for what you paid for the set, you get your wheel for free in the bargain...

I'm sure you could eBay the 3 wheels for $600 each, If I didn't already have a set, I'd buy these. I might be even interested in buying a spare front from you if you did buy these.. Good Luck

That a great plan, but I don't have the money right now to drop on that. I just bought another car, I only bought these because the price was too good to pass up. Plus with the exchange rate how it is and shipping I'd end up paying close to $2000 which I can't justify at this point.
